[National and international experiences with azelaic acid cream in the treatment of papulo-pustular acne].

In a series of investigation using 20% azelaic acid as a therapy for acne, it was found that the treatment, compared with most common therapies (benzoylperoxide, oral tetracycline) significantly reduced inflamed lesions in papulo-pustular acne.

Azelaic acid cream shows a progressive and significant beneficial effect and its action is more pronounced in long-term treatment.
